Numerous degraded wetlands are present under center-pivot agricultural irrigation systems in southwestern Georgia These areas hinder agricultural operations, are not as productive as surrounding upland areas, and provide only a fraction of their original wetland functions and values. At FIandH Farms in Early County, a prior-converted wetland has been developed into a series of moist soil units. This has resulted in improved agricultural efficiency, better wildlife habitat, restoration of some wetland hydrology and vegetation, and a potential income source for the landowners.
